  1. Integrate Newsletter subscription with Biz Forms

    It would be great if we could integrate into a Biz Form a check box that a user checks to indicate that they want to receive the site newsletter.

    This means a user filling in a for can subscribe in the one place instead of then having to go and subscribe to the Newsletter separately.

    Thanks
    James

    Hello!

    In order to inspect this suggestion further, could you share few comments?

    What is the most common scenario? A simple check box with a predefined specific newsletter?

    Should the subscription be avilable only after the complete form is filled and sent?

    What do you think of the currently available solution – creating a Marketing Automation process, which is triggered by a form submission, can check if a specific checkbox is checked and based on this subscribes the contact to a newsletter?

  2. Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

    Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

    Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

    Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

    Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

    If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

  3. Add a culture setting for pre-computing week analytics data

    Currently the web analytics of Kentico use the en-US culture to store week analytics data. Which means a week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday by default.

    If a customer uses a different culture such as nl-NL, the graph period selector uses the international standard of Monday as the start day and Sunday as the last day of the week.

    Selecting this will however result in a period of 2 weeks, since the weeks are rounded, which can be very confusing for the customer.

    Preferably there would be an option to select the culture in which the week analytics…

  4. Provide analytics on form autoresponder emails

    When someone fills out a form and an autoresponder is sent, we have no visibility into open rates, click rates, unsubscribes, etc. In a recent campaign, we were unable to provide relevant stats to our client. Email autoresponders consistently show the highest engagement rates of any email campaigns. Tracking the results of these autoresponders is a must-have! Thanks - Eric

  5. Ability to customize facebook og and twitter card metadata within the existing Metadata section of the Properties tab

    There is already a functioning area to hold and edit metadata information with good inheritance rules. Can the functionality be expanded to include metadata for common social networks such as facebook and twitter? This is a widely requested feature by clients and the Metadata section in the Properties tab seems like a natural fit.

  6. Forms - Redirect to url field

    Hello

    For the Forms area, it would be nice to make the Redirect to url field, a URL Selector form control and not be a text box. This way we can point to a page in the CMS Tree without problems, but also be able to put Macro's in the URL path.

    Thanks

    Hi Ilesh, I agree with you that within Forms module there can be a lot of UX improvements. Path or URL selector is definitely nice improvement for Redirect to URL field. Waiting for more votes. Thank you!

  7. Detecting soft vs. hard bounces

    Is it possible for Kentico to include or to look at the smtp reply codes when looking at the bounced emails, instead of only using the special key. This will mean that the task will look in the specified mailbox and look at the SMTP code and determine the type of bounce. Using these codes we can identify between a soft bounce and a hard bounce and most probably unsubscribe an email with a hard bounce. http://www.greenend.org.uk/rjk/tech/smtpreplies.html

  8. email priority

    Kentico adds to email from email marketing this properties:
    X-Priority: 5
    Priority: non-urgent
    Importance: low

    But I can not influence it. Please, add settings for it.

  9. Allow A/B and Multivariant tests in MVC without the page-builder

    I'd suggest that you allow new tests to be created "ad-hoc" in the CMS "A/B Tests" application.

    The CMS user should be able to define a list of variant names within an ad-hoc test. These will be the variants.

    Then in the MVC application Layout & Views something like this should be possible...

    if(@Html.Kentico().ABTest("MyTestCodename").Variant == "MyVariantName"){
    // Add or change markup based on variant in use
    }

    Additionally, having the ability to do log conversions against the current variant from within the controller would be required.

    The segmentation options should still be available in the CMS UI.

  10. Google Analytics event tracking on bizforms

    I'm having trouble with passing the referral source to Google analytics. It would be nice to have the ability for bizform submissions to trigger an event on Google analytics upon successful submission (After validation)

  11. Emails in queue with time to send them

    Emails in queue could have a time to be sent. It should work similar way as scheduled tasks do. Without time provided they would be sent ASAP.

  12. tracking download of files in custom page type

    I have custom page type with field "file". Kentico doesn't track download of this file. Only download of CMS.File is tracked.

    Please, add tracking of download of all files.

  13. Detect bounced mails by REST service

    We are using SMTP services from SPARKPOST to send our marketing emails in Kentico. The bounced emails are stored in SPARKPOST and there is no POP account to receive this emails. We also use several email address for sending the emails and some of them are just forward accounts, so there is no proper way to get the bounced emails as Kentico is setup.

    Please consider the possibility to monitor emails using REST. SPARKPOST as many other email SMTP solutions offer in their API the possibility to get the list of bounced emails, in this way will be easy for…

  15. Adding feature to filter when contact group assigned

    When contact assigned to group in contact group, there are no field in database to identified when this contact assigned to the group. As a result, we do not know when contact assigned and as a result reporting to show how many contact assigned to group by this month, week, day not able to generate.

  16. Increase the size of the "Position" and "Title" contact fields in the Contact database

    We capture these fields from fields in registration but they tend to be way longer than the current definitions in the Contact Management system. When we pass this information from registration to the contact database it gets lost if it exceeds the length. We have to manually add it back in and let it get truncated. Would be good if both were 255 that way we can not lose good data on our users and their activities.

  17. Allow use of different SMTP servers for Marketing and Transactional e-mails.

    Hello, every e-mail marketing expert I asked, told me that it is necessary to send Marketing and Transactional e-mails using different infrastructure. That is why I was very surprissed to find out, that Kentico does not allow to specify which SMTP servers it shoud use for Transactional and which for Marketing e-mails.
    Is there a chance to make it available please?

  18. Dynamic Score in Scoring Engine

    It would be awesome to have variable scoring in the Scoring engine. It's flexible on when you can determine a score should be applied, but the amount is fixed.

    For example, say a person is filling out a retirement form, i want to award more points the older they are (maybe Contact.Age/10), so someone who is 20 gets 2 points, someone who is 80 gets 8 points.

  19. Add macro rule containing score

    Hi, there is no rule using contact score which we can use for personalization.

    For example you want to show some content only for users with score between 20 and 50, but there is no rule for that. So we try to work around that with Contact Statuses and Marketing automation because there is trigger based on Contact score.

    First we set up scoring (rules, etc.), then create 3 contact statuses - Cold lead, Warm lead, Hot lead
    For each contact status (lead phase) we create a marketing automation plan - Cold lead MA, Warm lead MA, Hot lead MA …

  20. Make Marketing Automation multi-tenancy friendly

    I understand not many EMS instances will be multi-tenancy but Kentico touts to have a multi-tenancy platform but none of the marketing automation workflows support multi-tenancy. For instance if I have the Dancing Goat site and the Corporate Site running on the same instance, I can see all the marketing automation workflows in both instances. This should not be the case. You can leave the workflow as a global workflow but create a linking table or scope with that site's ID in it for workflows of type "automation".
